Read what our customers are saying about us…

Hi Angela!!

We are back in Seattle and finally catching up on things 🙂

First, I just want to say that we were so impressed with the food and the staff!! They all went above and beyond when it started to rain and things changed a bit. On top of that, everyone (us included) was just raving about the food itself and I think I ate about 5 helpings of leftover wedding food before we came back to Seattle! So thank you to you and your staff for everything! All the back and forth about planning, the alcohol permit, everything! We didn’t want to have the cookie cutter chicken/steak wedding and you all totally made our day special!

Hi Angela –

Thank you for the statement.

As to what you did for us at COLING, the word “pleased” is not enough!
Thank you very very much for thoughtful, well-organized and overall EXCELLENT work.

I had a large number of people saying that the banquet was absolutely wonderful — many said that it was the best one at COLING ever.
Also, even one or two of your employees said the same to me when they served lunches the next days.

As to the lunches, your ability to up the vegetarian percentage at such a short notice was nothing short of amazing.

Once again, thanks a lot!

Dear Angela,

I am sorry that you beat me to an email – because –

We were totally thrilled with the care that we received from you and the whole crew working this event. The food was absolutely amazing – all of it! – and the easygoing, celebratory and yet highly professional and attentive to detail manner of the staff was such a pleasure.

HI Alexandra,

We had such an amazing time at the Opera. My employees were most impressed by our tailgate. Everything from the linen to the dessert was fantastic. In fact, my colleague heard so much positive feedback that he’s booked Walter Burke for our office warming party next week!

Thanks again Alexandra. I’m looking forward to working with you again!

Warmest Regards,”

We would like to share with you how pleased we were with Walter Burke. Walter Burke knocked it out of the park! Our guests all agreed that the food and the service were phenomenal. Even with special dietary requirements of the guests (vegetarian and vegan), Walter Burke did an awesome job at creating a specialized menu for us that helped make our wedding the best I could imagine. When bad weather threatened our outdoor reception, the staff quickly came up with an alternative plan and executed. We can’t say enough good things about the service!”
